Master Amy Park

I am Master Amy Park, master instructor at U.S Taekwondo Center. I fell in love with Taekwondo at a very young age, and chose a career teaching this wonderful martial art.

My goal is to help my students — kids and adults — build confidence, focus, discipline, and the strength to protect themselves.

Adult programs at U.S Taekwondo Center are focused on helping adults achieve fitness and weight reduction goals, while learning self-defense in a fun and positive environment.

Over time, Taekwondo helps kids become more focused, disciplined and learn important life lessons. I want kids to set goals to achieve their black belt and become a better person. Kids will become positive role models after attending my classes. Taekwondo changed my life and I know it’ll change your life for the better. Teaching taekwondo is more than a job to me. The martial art is an important tool to create life-long connections between students, parents and teachers.


Master Amy Park is a 6th degree certified black belt from Kukkiwon, the world headquarters of Taekwondo. She has over a decade of experience teaching, managing schools, refereeing, and competing in Taekwondo.

Master Amy Park is such an incredible instructor! Those that attend her dojang learn so much from having such a devoted and hard working master. And her instructors Ms. Caressa and Mr. Devonte' always bring their "a-game" when teaching classes well. Its really worth joining the Team Park family. Come see what you are missing!!!

This is one of the best communities and investments that I could have ever made for my children. They work on values not just the taekwondo art. They have become and extended part of my family.
My mom brought me to this place when I was about 8 years old. I’m 24 now, but all I can say is this place was and still is an amazing school. I’m glad to see them thriving and doing well after so many years.

My son has been with Master Amy at Parks Taekwondo since he was three. Since taking these classes I can see a major difference in my son. His social skills are amazing. His control, self restraint, discipline and respect have improved. He is very excited to come to the classes. The staff is very nice and sociable. They are very understanding of different financial situations. I would highly recommend attending classes here.

I can’t say enough about Park’s Taekwondo! My daughter has been here for about 5 months, and she’s made so much progress—she’s moved up to Yellow Belt! I love that the students really earn their way up. The Belt Tests are such a great way for you to see what they’ve learned. The students are given leadership opportunities, and the instructors are warm, professional, and confident. The scheduling flexibility is also a huge plus—we can come any three days that best fit our schedule! Master Amy is amazing, and all the staff are so helpful. I highly recommend Park’s Taekwondo! ♥️♥️♥️♥️
My son has been coming here for four years and I cannot ask for a better place or a group of people for him to be around. All the staff there are fantastic and serve as a great role models for the kids. This is an easy five ⭐️ s

If you’ve ever thought of taking a martial arts class: I highly recommend Parks Taekwondo Academy! Besides the amazing staff & instructors that work there, the quality of each lesson; knowledge and sense of community can be found at no other Dojang.

My son has been coming to the Park's taekwondo since he was 5 years old. His sister just started a few months ago. I love this place. Everyone is super friendly. Best decision I ever did was putting them in taekwondo.

Although many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the tools that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about yourself.
